In Windows, does the script workspace run in a document window (as opposed to a floating or dialog window) ? Is so, the workspace disappearing behabior would make sense (that's what a document window would if not the active window).
I have this problem too.
When working on a script, I can be making a comment in the usual way "# etc." When I click outside of the comment into the script workspace window, it as if the script workspace window is not there. The click activates whatever is behind the script window which brings whatever is behind (other filmmaker windows, other program windows, etc. to the forefront. (The changes to the comment are kept.)
This does not happen on my Mac. It only happens on my PC which is running the latest version of Windows 10 Pro and FM Pro Advanced 16. It does not happen with FM 15. All software on the computer is kept up to date.
The usual IT guru actions have been taken (turning off and back on again, etc.).
To the excellent FM peeps, please can you look at this as it slows scripting down significantly. Thanks in advance.
BTW, on my computer this behaviour is consistent and not episodic.
